Sub-Captain Eve Traynor knows a suicide mission when she sees one. With deadly insectoid aliens threatening to invade Earth, the planet's only chance of survival is to get the attention of the fierce Eon Warriors. But the Eon want nothing to do with Earth, and Eve wants nothing to do with abducting War Commander Davion Thann-Eon off his warship. But when Earth's Space Corps threaten her sisters, Eve will do anything to keep them safe, even if it means she might not make it back.

Oh Eve is the best heroine I have seen in a while. She is tough, loyal, and very caring. Davion is the best his planet can create. The journey these two have will have you laughing, cheering, and on the edge of your seat. I have always been a huge fan of Anna Hackett and this new series is a must read. If you love sci-fy romance this is a must listen too. The narrator Vivienne Leheny does justice to the characters. She captures their feelings, ups and downs, and voices amazingly.

I have always loved Maya Banks.
This book is very very well written and I would’ve loved to know how it ended.
However the author did not continue the series so I guess I get to make my own ending.
It still ends happily it’s just that it leaves you wondering about certain things.
It’s still a very very good read and I would recommend it just don’t hope for another addition this was written in 2013 and there hasn’t been an announcement of a second book or the third book.

Sorry wasn’t able to go any longer then 30 mins into this book. The performance sounded like someone who has never performed. There was definitely no studio used to make this audiobook.

Plus the story itself didn’t bring you in to enjoying it. Too stilted

When Earth space marine Harper Adams finds herself abducted by alien slavers off a space station, her life turns into a battle for survival.

A former prince abandoned to the arena as a teen, Raiden Tiago has long ago earned his freedom. Now he rules the arena, but he doesn't fight for the glory, but instead for his own dark purpose - revenge against the Thraxian aliens who destroyed his planet.

What a start to a new series.
Harper was abducted from a space station and sold as a slave to the Gladiator house of Galin.
Raiden is a man that seems to still hold the weight of his planet on his shoulders.
As Harper learns how to fight in the arena they soon realize with each other
they can do everything.

WOW, that is all I can say just WOW
I so love how Sam and Galen came together in this book
Sam is such a strong woman and of course Galen is stubborn as can be.
The path and challenges they face make them both stronger and better together then apart.

If you have read any of the Galactic Gladiators this is a MUST read

I broke the rules and stole an auction item from her buyers. Because somehow, they’d managed to abduct a Gryfala princess. Though, she doesn’t look, or act, or sound quite like I thought one of her kind would. But I’m merely a Rakhii gladiator; this is the closest I’ve actually ever been to a princess. I’d be considered lucky, indeed, if she chose me to guard her. Instead, I want more. I need her to claim me. Because she doesn’t know it, but now I can’t let her go.
